Samoa Cookies

These delicious and easy cookies are vegan, free of gluten, dairy, nuts, grains, & refined sugars. They require no baking at all.

Ingredients:

  • 10 medjoul dates, soak in hot water.

  • 3 tablespoons of the water the dates soaked in

  • 1.5 cups of shredded coconut (unsweetened)

  • 1.5 cups of tiger nut flour* (could sub blanched almond flour if desired)

  • 1/8 tsp. salt

  • 1/2 tsp of alcohol-free vanilla

  • 1 tablespoon of virgin coconut oil

Topping:

  • 1/2 cup coconut (optional - lightly toasted) for rolling balls in before pressing

  • 1/2 cup dark choc chips (I use Enjoy Life brand)

  • 1 tsp. coconut oil.

*tiger nut flour is a grain-free, nut-free flour which is a resistant starch (a prebiotic and supports metabolism, energy & digestion). I use Organic Gemini’s brand. Learn about resistant starch, which supports a healthy microbiome, so it is sometimes called the "Skinny Starch." Directions:

  • Soak the dates in hot water for 10 mins.

  • Remove the pits & put the dates into food processor with the rest of the cookie ingredients, and 3 tablespoons of the soaking water/liquid.

  • Process, scraping down sides several times. It should come together into a ball. If it doesn’t, add a 1/2 tsp more of the soaking liquid or so until it does.

  • scoop out teaspoons of the dough, roll into a small ball and roll into extra coconut coating both sides of the cookie in the shredded coconut.

  • press the balls flat

  • place cookies on a small sheet pan lined with parchment (I line them up close, makes the chocolate drizzle easier)

  • at this stage, put into freezer for 10 mins.

  • melt the chocolate chips (I put them in a glass dish in toaster oven for 3 mins).

  • when chocolate chips are melted, add the coconut oil. Stir together.

  • remove cookies from freezer, drizzle chocolate on top.

  • return to freezer to set. 10 mins is plenty.

  • ready to eat!

I store them In freezer.
